Another Great Cruise by Jackie Marie

Room was small but clean and quite.

Lackluster by mustanggirl50

Our room was small but we were not cramped. We had a porthole. I do not upgrade to better rooms unless it is extremely cheap or free. I would prefer to spend my money on more important things. The bathroom did not have a counter like I am used to. The bedroom only had one plug and in the days of cell phones, laptops, kindles, etc. more than one plug is needed. I suggest you take an adapter or extension for more plugs.
We were on E10 near the front. Only time we heard engine noise was when we were docking. I guess it was the ropes.

Ample space in closet, tiny shower but enough space to use. Great beds and comfortable linens. A bit bumpy and noisy at times.  Read entire member review.

Fascinating Cruise by krazy4cruising
Lots of Storage closets + room under the bed for more suitcases Trundle bed was great for kids Window was large and gave a great view Empress deck is a great location There was noise and vibration from the bow thrusters when entering ports (keep this in mind if you are arriving in Key West at 7 am because the docking process starts at 6:30 am)  Read entire member review.
No fridge, No hair dryer (but ask the cabin steward and he'll get you one to use), ONE outlet, mounted bunk bed over the bed was in the way. Clean and nicely decorated.  Read entire member review.
Adequate space in cabin, with a nice large balcony that could easily have fit two lounge chairs. Quiet location with very little traffic in the hallway, and convenient to the lido deck and adults-only Serenity area.  Read entire member review.
Cabin E244-AFT. The interior looked more spacious than most (outside balcony cabins). Balcony was nice as it gave the view of the entire back of the ship. The middle cabin you could hear the motor of the ship, but I thought it was soothing and it was just a "dull" motor sound...nothing annoying. The area was very quiet because there's not a lot of foot traffic at the back of the ship. The one thing I will say is DO NOT LEAVE CLOTHES ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR WHILE SHOWERING. They WILL get wet! Every day we ran into this problem. Not sure if it was caused by being in the back of the ship or if the boat was just rockier than normal.  Read entire member review.
Fascinated on Fascination by michellefloyd1989

We actually booked 3 cabins (2 interior and 1 oceanview). We had the oceanview. Room was big enough. We didn't feel crowded (even when all kids were in the room). Room was constantly being cleaned. No complaints at all about the accomodations!

First Time Pleasure by Kentucky Gal
Our cabin was an ocean view, although the window was extremely dirty. It had plenty of room with double closets, but almost no hangers - we brought our own. The bathroom was more than adequate and everything was kept spotless. We were right across from the mid-ship elevators/stairs, which got a little noisy at times. One morning at 2 a.m. I had to put on my Mom voice and send some middle schoolers on their way because they had sat down in the hallway to gossip and giggle loudly. But most of the time it was relatively quiet.  Read entire member review.
Enough room for two people. Quiet. Felt a lot of vibration from the ship's engine, but I also felt it three decks up in the dining room, so I'm not sure if a different cabin would have avoided that.  Read entire member review.

This was our first time with an ocean view cabin - and this cabin had the 3rd bed - pullman style - our room was very spacious - the extra bed was locked and basically appeared to just be a small protrusion of the wall. Our cabin steward kept our room spotless - but I would really have liked the outside window cleaned just to get better photos - plenty of storage space - one thing I will mention - I always carry lysol wipes with me - I cleaned the closet shelves - they were dirty - but other than that - great experience in this cabin.

It was a nice view, although the windows were quite dirty and old, so the view was not very clear.

Floating Wal Mart by travelbound44

This was the first time we did an inside room and this part of the cruise was very good. Big room. Very quiet. No fridge but plenty of ice. Room steward was efficient. We had to leave the bathroom door open or the bathroom smelled like cat pee. We heard several others say the same. It's just an old, tired ship that needs to be dry docked or refurbished.

This was the first time we had an ocean view and it was definitely worth the few dollars more you pay. The view was fantastic! The room was ample size and the closets were larger than I expected since I tend to over pack!  Read entire member review.
Great Time for NYE by Magicandbird
My family had two exterior staterooms with an adjoining door. The cabins were still being cleaned well after the 1:30 target time (likely due to the late arrival). One of our cabins was missing a robe which was quickly replaced when asked. The other clearly had been occupied by savages at some point previously. The desk light did not work but was quickly repaired, the toilet stank even after it was cleaned and a couple of the desk drawers were broken. For standard cabins, they were spacious (185 square feet compared to 140 or less on other ships) and the beds comfortable. for a family of four this is the best way to travel where everyone has some space without paying for a suite. Plus you pick up the second bathroom which is always a bonus.  Read entire member review.
OKAY by Keri G
my cabin was okay we rarely stayed in it and it was just enough for me and my husband so really no complaints  Read entire member review.
Inside cabin, plenty of room, plenty of storage. No climate control in room, only air flow control of constant cold air. Very comfortable beds, nice shower. Liked the faux window complete with curtain to give you an "outside" feel.  Read entire member review.
The Junior Suite on this ship is comparable in size as a regular balcony on Conquest class ships. The balcony is tiny as is the bathroom. There was plenty of closet and drawer space.  Read entire member review.
We had a good cabin with an ocean view.  Read entire member review.
Great Again by wally437

Cabin is near the bow and a bit noisy while maneuvering out of port and in but otherwise very quiet.

 Read entire member review.

We had an Ocean View, category 6B (R132). We stayed in this same room last year, and there were some things that were better this year. The room is very spacious, with room to walk around the bed. We did notice mildew stains around the ceiling, but other than that we were pleased. The hot water left a little to be desired, as it would run hot for 2 or 3 minutes, then switch to cold for about 5. This is probably an issue we should’ve gone to guest services about, but didn’t. The air conditioner was colder than last year, as well. The amenities provided were: a pen, a travel sized toothpaste, 2 bars of soap, breathe right strips, shampoo and shower gel. I was glad that I packed my power strip at the last minute, because my hairdryer and camera battery charger would not fit in the single outlet under the mirror at the vanity. Our room steward, Adrian, was average, but he did quickly fulfill 2 requests for amenities that we had last year, but were missing this year: an ice bucket and a note pad. Other than that, we spoke to him in the hallway if we saw him (he did not speak first). If he had an assistant, we were not introduced.

Fascinating R&R! by lidoplease
'Quiet location-close to elevators, but no noise noticed from them."  Read entire member review.

This cabin is right above the gangway midship starboard. It is very noisy, lots of banging noises coming from below. We did however have an up close and personal view of the pilot boat coming along side and the pilot coming on board as we came back in to Jaxport. Fortunately I am an early riser as this took place at 5:15 a.m. otherwise I would have missed it.

Our housekeeper's name was Made and he was so nice and did a great job every day. All of the crew referred to us on a first name basis, even the baby! I loved the crew!

Can't Complain by bcstexan

The cabin is adequate size with a comfortable bed. The view was nice although slightly obstructed by dirty windows. I paid $40 extra for an ocean view and it was worth it to have the extra light and scenery while you are getting ready to leave the cabin.

Simply Amazing by cbell21219
Great Cabin for the price.  Read entire member review.

The cabin was adequate for our booking. We booked an interior room and had four people crammed into it, but given that the cabin was fine.

Single Cruiser Great time! by


 Read entire member review.

We had two 2 person cabins. Single beds which can be converted into a king, beds very comfortable, flat screen TV and plenty of closet space. Of course the shower is tiny as usual, but was fine for 5 days.

R066 (1A) - Small but convenient and cozy This cabin is in the center of the ship, in a hallway with rooms only on one side, and immediately adjacent to the mid-ship elevator. The proximity to the elevator was quite convenient. The cabin can only sleep two as it has one twin bed and a fold-down upper twin bed. There was plenty of open space in the room and when the upper bunk was folded up, the room even seemed spacious. The bathroom and closets are away from the door and sleeping area, so we felt this layout seemed a lot roomier than the standard two-twin bed setup which has the bathroom and closets between the doorway and the room.  Read entire member review.
Best Ever! by wally437

Great cabin and great steward Dennis who kept things straight. It was so crowded it took a while for him to clean up the room at times but that is only to be expected.

Cabin U123 is a standard inside cabin on deck 6. It was somewhat small, but we managed to have all the space we needed. It is located midship very close to the stairs. We only head noise twice during the cruise.  Read entire member review.

Clean and Comfy! Huge shout out to the staff!

U157 The room was nice, clean with big bath and closets and window. Very noisy. Across from a kitchen or something and they made noise all night long! A lot of noise from the engine also but it hummed me off to sleep so that I may be awaken later by the people coming and going from the kitchen or whatever it was across the hall.  Read entire member review.

U235 was a quiet room at the end of the hall, starboard side. It was next to the last balcony. The extra walk was worth not having the traffic passing by our door.

The OV aft cabin windows are a little deeper than the sides, and the windows are about 40% smaller. hallway on the end is twice as wide and there was a middle hall to walk down to the elevators. No stairs at the end of the ship though-so more walking. Quiet.  Read entire member review.
Fascination by Professor69

The Grand Suite was comfortable and we really enjoyed the balcony.

 Read entire member review.
Our cabin was a balcony suite with an unobstructed view on the Verandah deck. We had a very comfortable king size bed, a mini bar w/refrigerator, and a couch and table. The closet was more than adequate, and the bathroom was more spacious than I expected. The location was excellent, as we were only one deck away from the Lido deck and Coconut Bar and Grill, and only two and three decks away from the shops, casino, bars, and Palace theatre. The Verandah deck is very quiet, as well, because there are only a limited number of cabins on it. The only complaint that we had was the size of the balcony. The two chairs and table on it took up the whole thing, so we had to squeeze by the furniture in order to sit down. I'd definitely book this cabin again, especially since it included VIP embarkation/debarkation!  Read entire member review.
Aft cabin in center of main floor. It was a bit larger than regular cabins and has an extra closet. However, this cabin is directly across from crew stairs and is very noisy. Everytime they slammed the door our door would rattle. One night I swear they were counting silverware! I would choose a room next door. M269. My kids had a great experience with that room.  Read entire member review.
fascination-good time by gatripletmom
fair size, we had 5 people to inside cabin. one negative, we were next to internal staff stairway and it was noisy at times.  Read entire member review.

The cabin was ALWAYS cleaned and prepared for us flawlessly. It was small, but we didn't spend much time in it except to sleep.
